Obituary - Katherine Jones Greene

Katherine Jones Greene

Katherine Jones Greene, the sixth of seven children, was born on June 22, 1935, in the Bronx, New York to Hilma Eugene Jones and Dorcas Robinson Jones. At an early age she gave her heart to the Lord and became an active member of Community Full Gospel Church in the Bronx.

After graduating from Morris High School, Katherine attended Hunter College of New York where she earned a degree in Education. She began a career in social work, and eventually moved on to education and teaching elementary school students in the New York City public school system for many years.

On June 28, 1958, Katherine married her longtime sweetheart of five years, Hyman Greene. This union produced five children - Kenric Gordon, Robin Lynette Hudson, Kyle Warren, Raquel Ginnette, and Kristian Darren. Katherine eventually left teaching and was primarily in the home raising her children as the family grew.

After spending over 30 summers in New Jersey, in 1990 she and her husband Hyman became full time residents of Elm in Winslow Township, New Jersey. While living in Elm she was a faithful member of the Harvest Church (formerly Hammonton Assemblies of God) for over thirty years.

She leaves to mourn in her passing her brother, Hubie Jones; five children; grandsons, Kellen, Avery, and David; granddaughters, Alaysia, Carissa, Kristin, and Kerri; daughters-in-law, Jodi and Jonalyn; and a host of family and friends.
